CBRE | HEERY's Dena Null-Cook and Nick Fila present at HCD 2017

CBRE | HEERY’s Dena Null-Cook and Nick Fila presented at the Healthcare Design Expo and Conference earlier this month in a session titled, 'A Proactive Approach to Planning, Prioritizing, and Establishing Funding Needs and Budget Requests'. The pair were joined by Chris Dugas of Porter, LLC in presenting a session on the methods used by the CBRE | HEERY team to translate facility assessment data into the development of an interactive dashboard tool for managing healthcare facility maintenance operations. The tool helps track maintenance priorities and as a result minimizes health and safety issues, improves patient satisfaction scores and mitigates unplanned costs of emergency plant failures.

With aging facilities driving the cost of postponed maintenance initiatives higher each year, the session focused how real-time data can be used for capital planning and examining future replacement planning.
